Democrat Representative Says Biden Won’t Run In 2024

A prominent Democrat in Congress has stated that President Joe Biden will not run for reelection. Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York, who is in charge of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, told The New York Times that Biden would not run for the job again. She said this in a way that was not meant to be public.

She was asked her opinion on whether or not Biden should run again by The Times’ editorial board and she said “Off the record, he’s not running again. Not off the record, the Times retorted. In writing. As it stands? As Maloney put it. He shouldn’t seek office again, no. The President’s 79 years of age and his dismal approval ratings make this a legitimate concern. One of the most respected polling organizations in the country, Gallup, reported this month that President Biden’s popularity rating for the sixth quarter was the lowest in presidential history, at 38%.

The Daily Wire stated, citing statistics from the polling firm, that Trump’s current approval rating is the lowest of his administration so far, and that his average approval rating for the first year and a half of his term was the lowest of any president in the firm’s 74-year history. With the rise in coronavirus cases in the United States a year ago, Biden’s approval rating plummeted to 50%, marking the end of his honeymoon phase in office. Gallup highlighted in a press release that since then, “his popular support has plummeted as a result of the messy U.S. pullout from Afghanistan, the greatest inflation in four decades, record-high petrol costs, and ongoing supply chain concerns.”

There has never been a president elected to his first term with lower average approval ratings than Biden’s 6th quarter, while Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump were only slightly better at 42%. The average approval ratings for Presidents Obama, Clinton, and Reagan were likewise below 50%, the announcement noted.

Gallup reports that while Biden’s approval is at 38%, his disapproval is even higher at 59%. As a result, respondents were much more likely to have negative opinions about Biden than positive ones, with 49% strongly disapproving of the job he’s doing and 14% only moderately disapproving. However, only 13% of respondents are strong supporters of Biden, and 25% are moderate supporters.

The Daily Caller cited a USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll which found that a majority of Democratic voters do not want him to run for president again in 2024. Former President Trump was likewise shaken by the news, albeit his supporters didn’t seem as shaken as he was. It revealed that 68% of voters surveyed did not support his running again, while only 33% of Republicans shared this sentiment. One of Barack Obama’s former advisors has joined the chorus of Democrats who question Joe Biden’s chances of being reelected in 2024.

Biden has stated time and time again that he plans to run again, but his approval rating has dropped to the mid-30s in many recent polls, and Democrats are beginning to doubt his chances. On Tuesday, Obama adviser David Axelrod appeared on CNN to share his gloomy assessment of Joe Biden’s chances at reelection. Axelrod was specifically questioned about a study that found 75% of Democrats and voters leaning Democratic do not want Biden to run again in 2024. This poll was published by Newsweek.

Obama’s former advisor responded that the moment will come when “these figures have to be accounted for” and the president would have to decide whether or not to seek reelection. This is clearly really disappointing news for them. Axelrod remarked that he is sure, it is worrying It’s easy to become fixated on a single number, but we should remind people that he still has two and a half years until the next election. The numbers, however, are not positive for his approval rating as a whole,” Axelrod said.
